Pinata card using MFT dies

I see a theme emerging! Last week I made cards using the MFT fiesta word die, this week I've made some pinata cards! I feel like I should call this post "When Nuvo drops don't behave!". Initially, I created a card using the pinata dies and the largest 'In and Out Stitched Oval STAX' die… Continue reading Pinata card using MFT dies

Fiesta card using alcohol inks and stencil

I won't lie - I'm not sure about alcohol inks yet! I saw a video by Michelle Short of The Card Grotto using stencils with alcohol inks and I thought "Wow! That looks amazing! I want to give it a try!" so I gave it a try and I think maybe, I should leave this… Continue reading Fiesta card using alcohol inks and stencil

Golden anniversary card using emboss resist technique

So, yet another disclaimer - I made these cards and filmed the making of the cards back in September of 2017, but I didn't want to blog about them until I had the corresponding YouTube video created as well. Dear me, this video has taken FOREVER to edit!! When I put all the clips together… Continue reading Golden anniversary card using emboss resist technique

Birthday thank you cards with SSS flora stamp

It was my birthday last week, to be honest it was a bit overshadowed by passing my viva - it still doesn't feel real and I'm wandering about in a bit of a daze! However, with birthdays come lots of lovely gifts and thank you cards (because everyone likes snail mail that isn't a bill,… Continue reading Birthday thank you cards with SSS flora stamp

Rainbow Hello with Waltzingmouse stamps

This stamp set is from a company that are no longer in production, but there are lots of very similar stamps available, so I'm sure you can reproduce this with alternative supplies!

Altenew out of this world card

Disclaimer: I made this card at the beginning of September 2017, but I'm only blogging about it now! If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the galaxy background I painted for this card on September 7th, I'm so sorry it's taken me this long to let you know about the finished card!… Continue reading Altenew out of this world card

Step sister’s black and gold birthday card

Disclaimer: I made this card back in November for my oldest step sister, but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it. I was really pushed for time because I was spending almost all of my time writing my Thesis, so this was a really quick make. I used my embossing buddy… Continue reading Step sister’s black and gold birthday card

Concord and 9th Christmas card

Disclaimer: I made this card in December (yes, rather obvious given the theme!) but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it because I was writing my Thesis. I made this card for my best friend because I really do feel guilty not giving her a Christmas card because she is my… Continue reading Concord and 9th Christmas card

Mum’s birthday card

So I was apparently in such a rush to get to my Mum's house at the weekend that I didn't take a photo of her birthday card, so the only photo I have of it was taken on my phone on her laminate flooring!!! I'm really sorry that the photo quality isn't great! I wanted… Continue reading Mum’s birthday card
